The Professional Cloud Developer (PCD) training provides a thorough understanding of the technology platforms and cloud-computing providers. Application developers benefit further from having a thorough understanding, and working-level knowledge, of vendor-neutral application design principles, ensuring that applications provide the most value throughout the application lifecycle.
The course covers the standardization of cloud-related methods, and the architectures, technologies and design considerations in cloud development. Scalable coding for agility, portability (platform-based), tenant-awareness, and interoperability are also reviewed. Service modularity and orchestration concepts raise the candidate’s awareness of key cloud features as they apply to developers. Cloud security fundamentals and monetization techniques ensure secure deployment of solutions which realize the revenue generating objectives of the organization. Metadata and semantic data management are also included and enable candidates to anticipate future developments in both fields as they blend with the rise of machine learning, self-aware machines and the Internet of Things.
